f-hole Telecaster

f-hole Telecaster

We are in love with Telecaster and we continue our journey on the paths of instrument with its line. The f-hole Telecaster project uses a deeper boby than we had previously tried -Blade, e-blade, Tigris- in order to increase the acoustic possibilities of the instrument and two f-holes are opened on the upper lid produced about. Sound! We choose iroko wood for the frame of the guitar and a single piece made the job well. The top and bottom lid are made from wenge, a wood we have long relationship and experience and can create thin levels without fearing of damage. At the upper lid Stamatis’s laser cut in the two f-holes and the body of the guitar was formed. For the neck we chose an excellent bit of a gray walnut from N. America and respectively for the Brazilian rosewood fingerboard! The 21 frets are medium jumbo frets made of nickel zinc. The body like the neck passed with multiple layers of shellac, for protection and to reach a slightly matte sheen.

Originally a nickel fully adjustable bridge took place with the vintage Dixon keys, once brite strings by Gibson stretched for good, a rich, deep sound flooded our workshop! We spent many hours using the headphones at a satisfactory outcome, to decide that we would like and an electrical part. To reinforce the treble, we put in place a bridge Seymour Duncan Jazz and combined with the feedback board the instrument yielded much more than expected! Two classic chickenheads compact undertook to adjust volume and tone and an output jack planted on the frame. Final result is a lightweight, comfortable and fast guitar that covers very well the field of jazz & r&blues sound! Without exaggerating, one of our best efforts!
